Unbearable 24-hour/7-day construction noise and disruptions

Location: 
Atlantic Avenue and 6th Avenue
When: 
June 9, 2015 - 2:50am
311: 
1-1-1113239311

There are more incident reports- but this is one of the report numbers-- this has become unbearable, we cannot sleep one single night for the past 3 weeks.

Tractors backing up and beeping at every minute of day and night. I cannot work from home doing recordings as I usually do, losing time and money, and sleep over and over--
Forest City Ratner Companies/ Greenland / Pacific Park simply ignores Atlantic Terrace-- an 80-family building facing the intersection of 6th Avenue and Atlantic Avenue.

They keep saying that they sent Community Notices which, to us, mean absolutely nothing in regards to being able to sleep.

Our mixed-income mixed-use residential coop has no alternative to this noise and they are doing NOTHING to attenuate.
Lights shine over every window as if it were day all night long, and 311 respondents say they have no "category" for lights shining in addition to noise categories.

Video with noise and image to be big to be attached, only still image attached.
The video made at 9:40pm last night, the beginning of one more very long night of unbearable construction noise, can be seen here:

We also have witnesses who are not residents of the building.

PLEASE CITY OF NEW YORK DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. HOLD THE STATE ACCOUNTABLE. Thank you.

This morning, the following response was received from Nicole Jordan at ESD:

We understand your concerns and know that ESD is working with Greenland Forest City Partners to address each of them. We reached out to the developer and their On-site monitor regarding the concern and we were informed that the contractor was working to limit the noise associated with the work. We are sorry for any inconvenience that you’re experiencing due to the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Brooklyn project. We are pleased to report that Greenland Forest City Partners has completed the night work. We hope this information has been helpful.
